Published

A baby is among 74 people confirmed dead in the state of Kentucky, and more than 100 people are missing after at least 30 tornadoes ripped through six US states

Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear addressed the media about tornado recovery, confirming at least 74 people are dead with 109 others unaccounted for.

Search and rescue efforts have been continuing across Western Kentucky.

Meanwhile emergency workers, including 300 members of the National Guard, have been scouring debris for survivors and distributing water and generators to residents.

The US Federal Emergency Management Agency has warned that weather events like this are the “new normal” as it prepares to bolster resilience as a result.

How you can help tornado victims

  • Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear has started the Team Western Kentucky Tornado Relief Fund 
  • The Salvation Army has established services to provide food, shelter and other emergency care to victims.
  • The Kentucky branch of Feeding America is providing bags of food. Donations to the organisation’s tornado relief fund offset the cost of the meals.
  •  American Red Cross is pleading for people to donate blood as supplies run critically low. You can book an appointment online or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
  • The Mayfield Community Foundation has set up a GoFundMe to support local towns.
  • Local authorities are also encouraging any volunteers to come forward to offer support and relief wherever possible.
